I was reading up on low blood sugar effects and came across this information in a site.

When your blood sugar levels are too low, your cells become starved for energy. At first, you might notice minor symptoms, such as hunger and headaches. However, if you don’t get your blood sugar levels up in time, you may be at risk for serious complications.

What are these serious complications? Does it cause long term effect internally on organs? Or go into coma and death?

I've read on reddit about people getting hunger headaches due to not eating the whole day.
So i think it's a way body is trying to tell us that brain is not getting enough energy i guess. What happens if this happens for month after month? Brain damage?

People trying Intermittent Fasting or OMAD diets feel it in the beginning, but one gets used to it very quickly. I tried OMAD for 2 weeks and didn't feel any of the symptoms. People have been experimenting fasting for upto 72 hrs as well and don't forget so many people who have sit on 'Fast unto Death' in India.

Some of those politicians eat or drink fruit juice at night when no one is looking. Not eating or drinking water every day will probably kill a person within 2 weeks i think.

For normal person blood sugar level never goes down to cause any problem as the liver kicks in to produce glucose.

For diabetic person this would be a big problem if not addressed immediately. When sugar goes low, one feels hungry, blurry vision, excessive sweating occurs. My dad is a type 1 diabetic and I have personally experienced all these with him. If not addressed one may die, so there is no long term damage

High blood sugar causes long term damage like kidney, neurological problem, heart etc..

IF and OMAD probably one of the best food eating plans one can do. Problem is one needs to have all or nothing type attitude for that.
